    Research Interests

    I am currently interested in probing the chemical physics of fast chemical reactions at high temperatures and pressures.  A wide array of processes are governed by such reactions, however I am particularly interested in revealing the physics preventing the evolution of current combustion system technologies and fuels. I especially enjoy designing and constructing laboratory scale equipment that redefines the state-of-the-art capabilities of the specialized reactors and analytical diagnostics used to probe these difficult types of chemical systems.
